Stetson University has been named one of the best undergraduate institutions in the nation and the Southeast by The Princeton Review for the eighth year in a row. Only about 14 percent of four-year colleges in America are selected for the honor, which will appear in the 2023 edition of The Best 388 Colleges.

“This recognition highlights Stetson’s reputation for academic excellence and reflects the personal attention and close working relationships between our students and our first-rate faculty,” said Stetson University President Christopher F. Roellke, Ph.D. “Our students find many rich and challenging opportunities for experiential learning, conducting research side-by-side with faculty, studying globally and getting internships that expand their learning outside of the classroom.”

In its profile of Stetson University, The Princeton Review praises Stetson for attracting “go-getters” who make the profile of each incoming class “more impressive than the last.”

In surveys, students also praise the university for the low student-to-faculty ratio and small class sizes, which provide an environment where professors “inherently care” about students and want to ensure their success.
